And, finally, the hot, completely unsubstantiated rumor floating around my workplace was that the Mets and D-Rays were discussing a Lastings Milledge and "a Minor League pitcher" (probably Pelfrey, maybe Humber) for Carl Crawford. It didn't pass my smell test -- I'd think Tampa would command a lot more for their stud outfielder -- but it's fun to think about regardless. Plus, for what it's worth, a Met scout was spotted at Tropicana Field last week."
Via MLBTR courtesy of this piece from The Newark Star Ledger, Pelfrey is a piece of crap, I call bull.
Also Ryu was finally optioned to Durham to make room for Dan Wheeler.
